Figure 2: (a and b) A double-armed 10-0 polypropylene suture on a straight needle is introduced under the haptic through the corneal incision. (c) The suture is pulled out through the opposite paracentesis side guided by the straight side of ciliary sulcus guide. (d) The other end of the suture is passed over the haptic and then pulled out through the paracentesis. (e) The needle is passed through the end of the loop and then pulled slightly. (f) After forming a cow-hitch knot, the needle is inserted from the back side into the ciliary sulcus guide. (g and h) The needle is pushed from the back side and passed through the sclera. (i and j) Cow-hitch knot is tightened, and the suture is tied after the intraocular lens is centered and positioned
